Cabling was held in place with hand stitched wide bias binding. Starting from the back (where the cable connects from the computer, worn on a belt, to the costume) the cable runs up the back then to each of the four LEDs. To support the LEDs, millinery mesh was glued onto the inside of the costume with PVA and a slot was cut through the cloth. The LEDs are pushed through this and a backing of mesh was placed over the back of the unit, using velcro, to keep it in place.
The Plague Doctor's props include a fan, a Gladstone bag (old fashioned doctor's case) and a water spray.
